8 Night Southern Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 23, 2014
Ship: Carnival Sunshine
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

The herding of passengers at various times during the cruise was most unpleasant.  The hogging of lounge chairs by some was more than annoying.  The high priced Carnival endorsed excursion was horrendous.  The loud and raucous atmosphere was disturbing.  The term " Serenity" was misleading. The staff was most gracious and food enjoyable.  But unfortunately the negative aspects of the cruise seem to prevail and therefor reduces(or eliminates) my desire to cruise on Carnival in the future.
